of remission? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it. >>> perhaps the september report was the october vies. at least it was to some conservative who's say the numbers don't add up. 114,000 new jobs were added to the economy in september. that's a fairly lackluster number. more jobs were created in july and august than originally reported, so those numbers were revised up by 86,000. they are all still below the levels needed to sustain a drop in unemployment. that's why some people found it odd that unemployment fell by 3/10 of a percent, below the 8% mark to 7.8%. the lowest level in four years. politically speaking, dropping under 8% was a clear headline and a psychological boost for a president who needed something after his dismal debate appearance. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> mitt romney countered that 7.8% is nothing to celebrate. >> the reason it's come down is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work.

challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it. we know you.atever your business challenge, we know you have to rise early... and work late, with not enough sleep in between. how you sometimes need to get over to that exit, like, right now. and how things aren't... just about you anymore. introducing the all-new, smart-sensing... honda accord. it starts with you. >>> ohio is a political bellweather. in the last 12 elections the candidate who won ohio won the white house. maybe because ohio is a microcosm of the nation's electorate with its democratic dominated union-friendly areas in cleveland and toledo in the northeast, but the college town of columbus and central ohio. the republican leaning cincinnati and its suburbs in the southwest and the working class culturally conservative appalachian communities along ohio's southeastern border with west virginia. so if this an election about the economy, it's worth noting that ohio's jobless rate has dropped from 10.6% in early 2010 to 7.2% last august. there is debate over who gets the credit for that. president obama
